I guess everything in a 14 years ML are very fragile. I accidentally push the low range button too hard as shown in the picture. Which panel should I remove the get the button back on place?

You can get to it by pulling the radio. If the tabs are broken you can try using plastic two part epoxy, but do get any on the switches. Also do not block the slots between the two buttons.

Thanks!

I do see a small plastic broken tab falling off. Not sure the tab is from the switch or the mounting frame.

Can I just leave the after market head unit intact and just pry the center panel?

Is it possible to access the switch from the left side's D panel?

What is the trick to get these panel off? I do not want to break more fatigue plastic.

Appreciate all the help!

43 makes a good point about using glue.
If the switch is $53 at parts.com just replace it.

The only way I know to get to it is from the radio side. There may be another way, but I do not know what it is.

I had the same exact problem last winter because I too pushed in my Low Range button. I just opened the radio and with some Quick Steel epoxy, I attached it back to the side plate. The buttons still work and its been holding up since.
